3M™ SlimLine Twin Axial Cable Assembly

 

GO THE DISTANCE – A revolutionary bendable, foldable cabling solution ideal for tight spaces and transmitting signals over longer routes.

HIGH SPEED. LOW PROFILE.

Bend it, fold it, turn it — without
compromising signal or data integrity.

 

The 3M™ SlimLine Twin Axial Cable Assembly (SFF-8654) is ideal for SAS and PCIe applications in today’s high-density data centers, combining flexibility with the reliability you need to keep your systems running at top speed. Its unique ribbon construction enables folding and bending without adversely impacting performance. The ribbon's foldability provides more freedom to design folded cable assemblies optimized to maximize system density, streamline system assembly and enhance airflow. Moreover, its low-profile enables it to be routed through narrow openings between server components (fans, memory, heatsinks, etc.).

 

ENABLING A MORE ELEGANT SYSTEM DESIGN.

 

Custom assemblies using the 3M™ SlimLine Twin Axial Cable Assembly (SFF-8654) can bundle multiple folded assemblies into a harness designed to maximize space utilization, optimize cooling (by orientating low-profile ribbon to minimize airflow obstruction) and streamline system assembly – all while maintaining excellent signal integrity.

LAB-TESTED SIGNAL INTEGRITY FOR PERFORMANCE YOU CAN TRUST.

 

With a lower profile than conventional AWG twin axial cables, the 3M™ SlimLine Twin Axial Cable Assembly (SFF-8654) allows for a wider range of routing options and extremely tight bend radii for unique packaging configurations. Each fold* impacts impedance by no more than one to two ohms, well within the most demanding impedance specifications. Similarly, S-parameter performance metrics are not degraded, even with multiple folds.
